There are some great Italian knifemakers.

The Italians are doing some really cool work.  Here are two examples, the first is Emmanuel Esposito's Pike model with mosaic inlay;

Cowboys & Indians

Always liked Westerns and Cowboys and Indians.  Here is a Warren Osborne model called the Breech with engraving by Lisa Tomlin.

 I gave Lisa the basic concept of what I wanted then she came up with the images.  I like the way she incorporated the concho and the feathers with the cowboy and the indian.

Knifemaker Randy Doucette

I have bought/sold quite a few of knifemaker Randy Doucette's knives.  Randy is a full time maker working out of Ontario Province in Canada.  I have always been impressed with the fit and finish of his knives, his actions are as smooth as can be.  Here are pictures of a few of his pieces;
